Our bees made it through the winter. Happy Dance!!! Our winter wasn't as harsh as it has been in past years so that was a help. However, my dad has done more research on beekeeping and decided that we needed to make bee candy and feed them through the winter. I am guessing that it was a huge help as all the hives thrived this time.
Dad and Ryder went up to check on the hives two weeks ago and Dad decided that one hive in particular was just too full! Yep! Too full! They filled a tote with frames and brought them down. Madi and I scrapped them and then I started to filter the liquid gold! It is so sweet and a beautiful color. We haven't ever had the opportunity to harvest honey in the spring so this was a real treat!
In the picture above you can see my little pint jar on the left. I put honey in my tea every morning. Actually, whenever I make hot tea I put honey and vanilla creamer in it. I am addicted to it. I am all about the honey and vanilla! I have made my own vanilla creamer in the past but it is a bit more work than I really want to do right now. I just use Coffee-Mate's Natural Bliss creamer. It's made without GMO's. It sounds so good that I think I need to tear myself away from the computer and make a cup of happiness! Have a blessed day!
